Everyone’s favorite “try before you buy” Sling Exchange program is closing for the holidays, but… all existing orders will be shipped in the order they were placed! We are busy as Santa’s elves getting all current orders caught up on and shipped out ASAP. Thank you all SO much for your patience, but don’t worry our wonderful rental program will open again in the NEW YEAR.
Until then please direct all your babywearing questions to:
When my son Lincoln was born I knew that I wanted to carry him in a carrier as long as I could. So being new to the babywearing world I went out and bought a hotsling. I loved it until he was 3 months old then it became too painful to have him in the sling and so I sadly stopped carring my son and he went back to the carseat for our outings.
When I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter, Solei, I knew I wanted to try again so this time I choose a Moby wrap and that also worked until she was about 2 months old . Then I realized it wasn’t gonna work for chasing my son around. The Moby was good for breastfeeding, but it didn’t feel safe enough when I was chasing my 3 year old. So right before I went to Target to pick up a bjorn (YUCK) I decided to research some more because this time I was determined to wear my little one. I found some blogs that mentioned PAXbaby for renting carriers. I was at first bummed that they didn’t have any Bjorns to rent then I started reading reviews and realized why the Bjorn wasn’t on Jillian’s website. I loved how all the carriers were described with such detail, and I was so excited to be able to try out a carrier to find the perfect one.
I rented the BECO Butterfly for 2 weeks and fell in LOVE !! Carrying 5 month old Solei and chasing Lincoln was a breeze ! I ordered the BECO butterfly and haven’t looked back I get lots of comments from strangers wondering what I am wearing and if it hurts . I love being able to tell them about the BECO! It truly is a shame that it isn’t carried by more mainstream department stores like Target and Babies R Us. I never would have known about this carrier if I hadn’t stumbled on Jillian’s website. Now I rave about my carrier and PAXbaby!!! I want to share to the world how awesome it is to wear babies. Thank you, Jillian and BECO : )
I thought I wasn’t the babywearing type. I had tried everything, or so I thought. I went through countles babies’r'us carriers, a moby x 3, Ergo, 2 different ring slings. I was frustrated and after basically giving up on being able to wear my child, I found PAXbaby.com – I found Jillian! She is so helpful, and patient. I tried the rental program, and found out that I need a Beco.
Not all carriers are made equally.
Now I am able to wear my LO, any time and all the time. I LOVE IT! It improves my mood, when I am able to accomplish chores, and not have a baby crying at my leg.
If you haven’t heard of babywearing before, or think you aren’t the babywearing type, you need PAXbaby.com.
PAXbaby.com Only 2 weeks-ish until the newest PAXbaby makes his appearance! While balancing family and work, the PAXbaby mama is waiting patiently for a few last baby carriers for #6′s newborn stash!

PAXbaby.com Great news for all of us is that the PAXbaby’s mama’s mama (that’s right – the PAXbaby grandma!) will be packing and shipping orders from our Southern California studio, PAXbaby Kristie will be organizingSling Exchange and taking care of rental inquiries, & PAXbaby Laura will be available to answer any babywearing questions!

Congratulations to Meghan in VA for being Sling Exchange‘s 100th Beco Butterfly II renter since September 2010!
The PAXbabymoms are die hard Beco fans and have enjoyed helping so many babywearing parents find the Beco love through our Sling Exchange program! Exploring the depths of the baby carrier world can be a harrowing ordeal, but Sling Exchange has simplified the process and offered many many babywearers the opportunity to try out the carriers first hand to see which they and their baby prefer in person. Not having to rely on another person’s experience when making such an important decision is the key to a successful baby carrier purchase and a long lasting babywearing career!
When I first started researching better babywearingoptions for Baby #4, there were maybe 4 viable SSC options for me to choose from. It took me 4 months to decide on which carrier to get for my new lil’ fella and by that time, my husband had listened to hours of chatter from me regarding the different options. How I WISH there was a Sling Exchange back then so that I could have tried all the options without the heavy commitment! Laying out $129 for my first Beco 4th Generationseemed like a HUGE investment! What if it didn’t fit right? What if my baby didn’t like it? What if I was making the wrong decision???? I agonized over the choices until finally, my husband told me we were going to pay Gabby at Beco Baby Carriers a visit and have her fit me in a Beco, and that was that! Thank goodness he finally put an end to my misery! Gabby was wonderful, the Beco was an instantaneous success, and we all lived happily ever after!
However, thanks to PAXbaby’s Sling Exchange, you don’t have to agonize like I did! You don’t have to put all your eggs in 1 basket! You can take your time, compare your top choices head to head, and make an informed decision based on wearing the carriers in person and not just relying on what other moms have to say! Try before you buy and take the pressure off getting it right the first time!! Being able to see each carrier’s designs with your own eyes and getting to wear each carrier and weigh the differences and similarities between each one is a fabulous way to make the decision making process that much simpler! Now, if you fall in love with more than 1 carrier, I can’t help you there….
If you know any moms looking to invest in their first major baby carrier purchase, send them PAXbaby’s way so we can help narrow down the options and figure out which carriers would suit their needs the best! Then, PAXbaby’s Sling Exchange is a great option so that new babywearers don’t have to take the plunge right away, but slip into our wonderful (and addicting) world of babywearing slowly, with lots of information, and hands on experience with each of the different carriers on their list! THANK YOU for helping to spread the babywearing love!!!!
One of my favorite baby carriers has arrived at PAXbaby - AGAIN! PAXbaby used to have these fabulous SSCs available but due to manufacturing difficulties stopped carrying them. Now, once again, PAXbaby can proudly offer the Angelpack LX soft structured carrieras another wonderful babywearing option!
I loved what Lindsey B. said about the Angelpack versus other brands, ”There are other baby carriers like the Baby Bjorn which has gained popularity not for its comfort or skeletal support but simply due to its common availability. I strongly urge friends, parents and grandparents not to spend another dollar on the Baby Bjorn. The Angel Pack is unparalleled in its utility and comfort (for parent and baby alike). I am spreading the awareness of this product because every baby should feel this cozy and supported and any convenience that can be offered to parents of little ones should not be kept a secret!”
The AngelPack company is a family run company and uses green energy & organic materials in their manufacturing.
Angelpacks are manufactured in the owner’s home town in the Dominican Republic giving her local people jobs at fair wages and in good working conditions.
The AngelPack baby carrier has integrated leg padding for your angel’s comfort!
The adjustable straps will fit XS-XL women & men so you can share your Angelpack between parents and not worry about fit.
The Angel Pack can carry newborns, toddlers (up to approx. 35lbs.), and premature babies too.
The Angel Pack is reversible so you get two baby carriers in one!
Wear the AngelPack as a front pack, back pack or hip pack, and be equally comfortable in every position!
And great reasons for parents to enjoy wearing the AngelPack:
Stronger and closer bonding between parent and baby.
Keeps the baby close to your heart.
The AngelPack provides waist/hip support for the parent which is much more effective at carrying the baby’s weight.
The AngelPack provides hands-free mobility to complete daily tasks and chores.
The AngelPack allows for easier and discreet nursing on the go.
You will be less dependent on heavy, cumbersome strollers.
Fabulous reasons for babies to love being worn in an AngelPack:
Stronger and closer bonding between parent and baby.
Baby gets a better view of the surroundings for sensory development.
Baby is being carried in a seated position which means the weight of the head is dispersed to the hip, thighs and spine – much healthier for baby than hanging by the crotch, as with some other baby carriers.
Try an AngelPack for all these reasons & more!!!! Buy 1 or rent 1 through PAXbaby’s Sling Exchange!
